Here’s what we know…
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was recently hospitalized with an infection because of a gallbladder condition. A statement from the Supreme Court reads, “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent non-surgical treatment for acute cholecystitis, a benign gallbladder condition, this afternoon at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.”
“Following oral arguments on Monday, the Justice underwent outpatient tests at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., that confirmed she was suffering for a gallstone that had migrated to her cystic duct, blocking it and causing an infection.”
Ginsburg, 87, has had many health problems recently which has called many people to ask her to retire, however she is “insisting that she’d like to remain on the bench until she’s 90 years old.”
President Trump has been able to elect two Supreme Court Justices in his first term, and if he is able to elect a third seat, then “it will likely shape the nation’s judicial system for decades to come.”
